Group policy to create IE - 32bit shortcut for specific website

I have a vendor website that requires 32bit Internet Explorer (yes, first solution is use a different vendor, right?).

You can see I've built a GPO, that I believe should work correctly.  I've created a test OU, placed my test computer in it (Win7 - 64bit), and linked the policy.  Below is the policy I built.  Pretty straightforward I thought.

GPO setup
Problem is that I'm not getting ANY shortcut appearing on my desktop

Did you run gpresult /R on workstation to make sure that policy was applied ?

Check that the Policy is applying properly to your computer.  Using gpresult and\or rsop.msc  you can confirm this.

If is applying are there any event log entries indicating problems creating the shortcut (such as permission issues etc)

Robert - I did find an error:
"Group Policy objct did not apply because it failed with error code '0x80070002 The system cannot find the file specified."

File path to 32bit IE appears correct, but it seems I must have a typo.  I'm checking that.

If I am not mistaken, you should omit the quotes enclosing the program and run in path - that could be the problem.

McKnife - I just tried that after verifying my syntax was otherwise correct.  I believe you are correct.

The shortcut did apply to my two test machines and appears to be working now.  I'm going to test  bit further with some additional machines (including a Win10 box).  I should be able to close this tomorrow.

Quotes in the target path will result in error indicating unable to find specified file
